The fairy-tale post-season continues for the Lancer men’s hockey team, as the third-seeded squad notched its sixth straight victory over a higher-ranked opponent, topping the No. 2 Acadia Axemen 4-2 in the first game of the University Cup round-robin, Thursday in Saskatoon.
It was Windsor’s first win at the national tournament in program history.
Lancer captain Drew Palmer said he doesn’t mind being underrated: “Playing as an underdog team has been working for us all playoffs.”
He notched a second-period power play goal that tied the game at two after Richard Cameron scored Windsor’s first. Kenny Bradford with the game-winner and Mike Christou’s insurance marker rounded out the Lancer scoring.
The team’s next action will come against the host Saskatchewan Huskies at 9 p.m. EDT Saturday. A win would put Windsor into Sunday’s title game.
